CNA's/PCT's how much do you make?

  1. I have a couple interviews for PCT positions, but I have no idea what to expect as a salary. I am a student nurse in NE FL. Please tell me where you live, your experience, and how much you make. I know I will probably have to take a pay cut, but to be doing what I am going to school for will be worth it, I think. Thanks for you help!

    I'm not a CNA, but the ones in my area of Ohio seem to make anywhere from $8-$12hr. The higher end being for those that work at the Ohio Veterans Home.

    I'm a non-certified nursing assistant in a Georgia assisted-living home. My pay is $8.00/hr. Some of my co-workers make $8.50-$9.00 an hour, but I think some of them are certified. In the nursing homes I believe they make $10-$12/hr. (I made $6.00 as a CNA, but that was back in 1995.) HTH!

    can't speak personally, but in TX the pay is only about $6.50/ hr all they do is wipe butts and change sheets. many students in the nursing schools down here tried that and are going back for RN.

    I don't work as an aide/tech, but some of my classmates do and I've looked into it. I think the average around here (central Mississippi) is about $8.50/h

    What state are you in? That seems pretty good compared to everyone else. CNA's definitely don't get paid enough

    I work on a basic floor of a hospital and started at $7.79 and after a year get payed $8.51. We get a 3% raise every year I think and sometimes another 3% for other various reasons. This is in Central IL

    I work as a SNE/tech at a hospital and my base is $13.00. But since I work weekends I get a 2.60 shift dif, plus an extra 1.15 after 3 pm. I am in Indiana.

    In Central Florida you can be hired at all of the local hospitals as a PCT or Nurse Tech after you have completed your first semester of an ADN program. Starting pay is $12 plus shift diff
